peer2peer support group blog for people with personality disorders.
There are many make believe monsters; there are also many real monsters but they live inside us.
These monsters are our "Real Monsters." Toby Allen, creator of "Real Monsters" brought to life the diverse real monsters that many of us battle on a daily basis. Anxiety, Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Schizophrenia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Paranoia, Bi-Polar, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Social Anxiety, ect. are personality disorders that trouble some of us.
Check out and follow My Monster & Me. It is good for anyone with a personality disorder of any kind at any level.
I started this in hope that I can reach out to others and help them know that they are not alone. That it is okay to admit it out loud. That it is okay to tell others that you take medication and go to therapy. It is okay. Your Monster is not you. Your Monster is something you have to learn to live with and so do others. We are all in this together. Society makes it so taboo, it's up to us to push back and say no. Don't be ashamed that you have something wrong with your brain. A personality disorder was not something you asked for. So it's not something you should feel guilty about.
My main goal is to start a peer to peer support group (in the NC Triangle) and to someday write a children's book. For now I am starting with this blog and other social media outlets are to come.
"1 in 4 adults — suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder; 1 in 17 — suffer from a serious mental illness"

Lately I have been getting heavier because I have been eating more because I’m happy for once in like 3 years. (I am finally in a good place.) Eating for me has been a struggle. I either wouldn’t eat enough or wouldn’t eat at all because I was depressed. My mom has been getting on me because “if I don’t watch it, I’ll get fat” at this point in my life I don’t even know what “fat” is or care. I am curvy, I am voluptuous, I am beautiful and I am a goddess. We are all different & that’s what makes us special. Ladies & Gentlemen Be You and embrace however big or little you are, as long as you are happy. #beyou #special #beautiful #voluptuous #curvy #fat #goddess #food #eating #eatingproblems #heavy #weight #happy #blessed
